    Very good food as indicated by the full dining room. Reservations only (they were turning others away). Wait staff were a little overwhelmed and service was slow.

    This will be a one and done experience for me. We arrived at 5:45 for dinner and there were three other tables filled. One waitress took our drink and appetizer order and then she got stuck behind the bar when the place filled up. A different waitress came by and asked us what we wanted to eat, just before 6 PM. This same waitress came by at 6:21 and then asked us a SECOND time what we wanted for dinner as she forgot to put our order in. By this time the place was slammed and our food didn't arrive until 7 PM. This is an example of extremely poor service. The woman who took our food order was all apologetic to other tables who arrived after we did and she said NOTHING to us. We had to order another glass of wine from a table runner and had to flag down another person to pay our check. The food was good BUT beware that their portions are overly large and two people could split a pasta dish as their main meal. I get that places have issues with staffing, but this was a horrendous dining experience and to watch the lack of professionalism and common courtesy on one woman's part was highly unsatisfying. I don't care how great your food is, when you sit at your table with no water, no wine and no food for a half hour, you need to fix the issue.

    We visited for dinner on Saturday, 9/17/22. The restaurant was a bit understaffed but that didn’t keep our waitress from being amazing or our food from coming out timely. About our waitress (I don’t remember her name): I actually fell head first about 3 steps away from the front door. I believe my heel got caught on the uneven sidewalk which caused me to fall & injure the right side of my body. I was in tremendous pain when we went inside. Once we were seated, my friend asked the waitress if she had pain meds while explaining the incident. She quickly went to see if she had any. When she came back she explained that she didn’t have any meds but brought back a clean towel & a bag full of ice. I believed her quick thinking help to minimize the injury. Kudos to her.

    The food was amazing. My husband and I shared the sausage & peppers for an app. I had the linguine with white clam sauce which is one of my favorites. The portion is huge and provides at least 2 more meals! My husband had the pappardelle bolognese- fabulous. The service was wonderful- the 3-4 ladies taking care of us were pleasant, friendly and on top of things. This continues to be one of our go to favorites.

    Food took 45 minutes and pasta was not cooked well. We were told it was because everything is made to order but they clearly were not prepared to manage the number of reservations they confirmed around the same time.

    Sammy’s is our go-to dinner place when attending shows or concerts in Baltimore. Have NEVER been disappointed! Even though things get really busy, the staff hustle to get you to your show on time. Make reservations early enough to have one of the best dining experiences before your show.

    Food was excellent; however, around 8:00 pm they turned the volume of the music very loud to 90s hip hop. The music did not match the scene of the restaurant, which did take away from our meal a bit.

    In a world of trendy restaurants, you occasionally come across an oasis of genuine care for guests and authenticity. Sammy's is THE place. The setting is warm and comfortable. The food is fresh and well prepared. And on our very first visit, the wait staff made us feel more than regulars. They treated us like family.

    The food was good. The team service was terrific. It was our first time at Sammy's and we liked everything about it. Our three servers were dealing with a full floor that included a party of 20+, but you wouldn't know it from how attentive they were to us; they made us feel like we were the only ones in the place. We'll be back.

    There were 12 in our party celebrating a birthday. We received a warm welcome and Val was attentive and engaging the entire time! She's the best. She took such great care to make sure we had a fabulous experience. The other 2 servers were so nice and helpful also. Every single app & entre was perfect and delicious. Food was made to order - special care was taken for a few of us with food allergies. Did I mention the food was incredible?? We're already planning our next group Birthday dinner :)

    Amazing experience start to finish! The bread service to start was fast to come out and super tasty. The burrata salad and ravioli entrees we ordered were absolutely delicious. Then Sammy came to our table to ask how everything was - what a treat! We finished off with fantastic cannoli. Will 100% be going back again. We had a 6:00 reservation before an 8:00 show at the Meyerhoff, and walked into the venue at 7:50 with plenty of time to get to our seats. Would absolutely recommend to anyone in the area, especially those seeing a performance at the Lyric or Meyerhoff.

    just moved to the area and decided to check the place out. went on a saturday night early (6:30) and it wasn’t too busy. the bread and garlic dipping sauce that is served as the starter is delicious! servers were very attentive, pouring wine and checking often to make sure we were please. my mom and i got an appetizer, entrees, dessert, and a bottle of wine for under $150 including tip! great price for really good food with large portions. will be back

    I sympathize with the problems of attracting and keeping good staff but Sammy's seems to be troubled this year. The waiter did not tell us of the specials, did not bring drinks when requested, did not offer parmesan for the pasta, and did not check in. There is no longer a pre-concert menu. We ordered an appetizer and salad each, nothing else. There were still leftovers (enough of mine to make lunch for two at home). The food was nothing special and there was too much. Still, there's nowhere else to eat before a concert at the Meyerhoff, and we are longtime customers so we keep hoping.

    When the restaurant is full it is noisy and the service is slow due to not have enough cook staff or servers. We ate there on Sundays about 6 pm so they may not normally be that busy. The food is excellent and they give you large portion. I recommend this restaurant highly.
